My Honest Review: Quick Fix Facials

I have been using Quick Fix Facials for about 2-3 months and I have to say I am very impressed. I have very problematic skin (As I have discussed on Victoryforu) so to find something that worked for my skin was extremely helpful.

These three are my personal favourites and are the ones that are almost finished – deffo need to reorder soon. I also love the Overnight Miracle Mask which smells divine!

Calming Clay Mask – I used this on my problematic areas around my mouth and nose which are the most sensitive.

Collagen Lift Mask – Perfect to use a night before a big event, this is actually what I used to get ready for the Oxford Fashion Studio shows in London.

Mega Moisture Mask – I used this over the problematic areas as well which helped to replenish the moisture lost after a long day.

As I have mentioned before, my skin is one of my biggest insecurities. To find something natural, cruelty-free and affordable that actually helps my skin to look better is so good. I highly recommend purchasing Quick Fix Facials especially if you’re a teen on a budget like me.

I also recommend multi-masking, especially if you have combination skin like me. My current situation is Exfoliating Scrub on my nose and forehead,  Collagen Lift on my cheeks, Anti-blemish Mud under my eyes and Mega Moisture everywhere else.

Is my skin perfect? Not by any means. But I have noticed a glow that wasn’t on my skin before. My biggest recommendation for using the Facials is finding an exfoliating sponge to open your pores before use and to wash it off after use. It really helped to produce a better result for me.

There isn’t a product in this range that I wouldn’t recommend. There is truly something for everyone! Make sure you check Quick Fix Facials out now. Free UK delivery when you spend over £10 and each Facial is £4.99… I don’t think I need to persuade you anymore 😂😂😂

Just go get it!

London Fashion Week Round-up 

London Fashion Week was an absolutely amazing event with the glitter of Ashish, the contrast of Versus Versace and the artistry of Julien Macdonald.

I am going to show you my favourites from the week and I hope you enjoy it.


In one of the biggest celebrations of fashion and style, disability and diversity were celebrated in the Teatum Jones show which kicked London Fashion Week off.

Two disabled Models were cast in this show which became big news as things like this are a rarity to show disabled people in a positive light. Models Jack Eyers (Who was the first ever disabled Male to walk in New York Fashion Week) and Kelly Knox commanded the runway in spite of the disabilities they have. This made national and international news in The Telegraph, Huffington Post and The Guardian.

This collection from Teatum Jones used a dark palette of blacks, greys and navies which were highlighted by deep and fruity reds and mechanical silvers. This palette put into oversized knitwear and Jackets, mid-length dressed and masculine tailoring made for an extremely wearable collection that could easily be worn on the high street without too many peculiar looks.

The seed of the idea came last year after meeting people in the para-athletics community, said designer Cat Teatum. “Able and disabled bodied people don’t have different desires when it comes to fashion. They want great textiles, interesting shapes. Kelly and Jack are dressed in the collection like the other models. We’ve just had conversations with them about how to adapt their clothing. The overriding message is that we’re all the same.”

– Quote Taken from The Telegraph


Romantic Fantasy is a recurring theme which the next Designer, Ryan Lo. Hong Kong-born, Lo keeps his designs completely authentic to his background and this collection was no exception.

Ryan Lo is one of us! He too learns things through Youtube Tutorials and in fact this is how he learned how to knit. He is definitely a force to be reckoned with!

In complete contrast to Teatum Jones, the palette is light, airy and dreamy. With the accentuated colourful pigtails, his designs look they have come right of a romantic graphic novel drawn in an anime/manga style.


One of my favourite designs ever is up next – Julien Macdonald!

With a palette of Red, Black, White and Silver, Macdonald creates yet another sensational collection that you can tell belongs to him due to the sheer artistry of each garment.

So many of these garments scream red carpet, celebrity and award show. This outfit above worn by Grace Bol would look perfect as a performance outfit for JLo, Beyoncé or Shakira.

One to Watch according to the British Fashion Council: Halpern!

Michael Halpern was born and bred in New York but has lived between London, Paris and America for the last 5 years. He has worked for Oscar De La Renta and J Mendel and then decided to embark on his own fashion journey.

It is safe to say that Halpern’s collection has a lot of drama and each piece is breathtaking.

Vibrant colours and prints mixed with sequins makes for an intricate style that may not work for everyone but is definitely there for those who want to stand out from the crowd.

Even Vogue named it one of the top 10 shows of London Fashion Week which is a huge honour.


Versus Versace is up next and they certainly did not disappoint!

Youtubers Roxxsaurus and MakeupbyLeyla were invited to the Versus show and they loved it.

And here’s part of the fabulous Collection that has sport luxe vibes running throughout the whole collection.

And Finally Ashish! There are so many other brands that I loved from this Season but I tried my best to whittle it down to my absolute favourites.

Ashish was Glitter personified. The Mexican-wrestler inspired makeup was an interesting choice and I appreciated the inspirational quotes on some of the garments. I didn’t love everything, as you may expect, simply because there was an overload of glitter and no contrast of texture which I was slightly disappointed with. However, as individual pieces, I think this is really cool.

I hope you enjoy reading this as much as I enjoyed writing it.

Victoryforu’s top 10 – American Music Awards

Here is a rundown of my favourite AMA looks:

10

Gigi in an off the shoulder lace dress from Roberto Cavalli

This is one of my least favourite of Gigi Hadid’s looks of the night, however, this Roberto Cavalli dress was definitely a brilliant start to a night of amazing outfits from Gigi Hadid.

9

Shawn Mendes always looks cool on the red carpet. This is not the best I have seen him look but I think that they outfit suits his relaxed personality. And besides, he has a whole music career ahead of him to experiment with different shades and textures. Shawn always wears darker colours well, I would just like to see him branch out a bit more.

8

This short and sweet number from Rocsi was an excellent style choice which was also easy for her to move around in and to do what she does best; Present!

7

Gigi in Embellished two-piece from Julien Macdonald - Hailey Baldwin also wore this in his spring 2017 show

Both Julien Macdonald looks were some of my favourites from his Spring 2017 show earlier this year and Gigi absolutely slayed both outfits.

6

Lady Gaga’s simple yet striking white outfit was truly brilliant but nothing in comparison to her voice. Her prior work with Tony Bennett really showcases the power and beauty of her voice.

5

This was the dress that everyone left remembering Gigi Hadid in. Why? Because it is so striking. From the colour to the cut, this is a dress that seriously brought the house down.

4

The ever beautiful Karlie Kloss looked effortlessly exquisite. And the hair flick in this video… This is why we call Karlie Kloss a Super Model!

3

I couldn’t decide with these two, I love their outfits from Zuhair Murad equally.

2

Her speech touched my heart and her dress made me smile. Even though this is a simple dress, She wore it with such elegance and such grace that she completely deserves this spot.

And my favourite outfit of the night was…

Hailee Steinfield

Elie Saab has done it again with another sensational design. I love everything about this romper, The colour, The sparkle, The shape, Everything!


Those are my top 10! Do you agree or disagree? Let me know below.
